Hitler's Niece tells the story of the intense and disturbing relationship between Adolf Hitler and the daughter of his only half-sister, Angela, a drama that evolves against the backdrop of Hitler's rise to prominence and power from particularly inauspicious beginnings. The story follows Geli from her birth in Linz, Austria, through the years in Berchtesgaden and Munich, to her tragic death in 1932 in Hitler's apartment in Munich. Through the eyes of a favorite niece who has been all but lost to history, we see the frightening rise in prestige and political power of a vain, vulgar, sinister man who thrived on cruelty and hate and would stop at nothing to keep the horror of his inner life hidden from the world.

Review:

?An act of sustained speculation about a small, horrifying domestic drama that took place while a much larger evil was unfolding; Hansen's achievement is to vividly portray one as a symptom of the other. . . . Because of its mixture of historical detail and psychological nuance it rings true.? --"The New Yorker?["Hitler's Niece] invites us to consider Hitler in a new light . . . Hansen succeeds in conjuring Hitler as he probably was.?--"New York Times Book Review?A daunting feat, an accomplished writer testing his faith by looking evil directly in the eye.?--"Chicago Tribune?Hansen's fictional tour de force.? --"Time?Hansen has researched not only the case itself but its political and social background in meticulous detail. All this Hansen evokes as well as I've ever seen it done, with a wealth of vivid local detail that carries complete conviction.?--"Los Angeles Times Book Review?Ambitious, provocative . . . the confluence of historical event and personal destiny becomes mesmerizing.?--"Publishers Weekly?Scrupulously researched. Hansen's informed interpretation of events makes convincing, if melancholy, reading.?--"The Boston Sunday Globe?A carefully crafted and distinctly macabre work of fiction.?--"Village Voice?A novel that reads like history.?--"The Austin American-Statesman?Hansen has written a convincing novel that is provocative, disturbing and illuminating.?--"Raleigh News & Observer?Hansen is a fearless storyteller. . . . [He] creates a savagely human portrait of Hitler. . . . ["Hitler's Niece] reads, like all good books, as a vehicle for the writer's obsession'an intelligent, haunting, and oddly devotional exploration of the unimaginable'-Hitler in love.?--"BookForum?Abrilliant, chilling account.?--"Entertainment Weekly?Riveting . . . Hansen's insightful, brilliantly interpretative, and frightening novel does more to illuminate the welter of evil the fueled Hitler than a dozen biographies.?--"Booklist"
